Some last-minute leaks are making the rounds ahead of Apple's event today, and these involve the expected updates to the Mac Mini and MacBook Pro 13 with Retina.

9 To 5 Mac is reporting that Apple's refreshed Mac Mini models will have upgraded RAM options, as well as updated processors and storage capacity.

Here's the rundown of configurations, according to the site:

  • 2.5 GHz dual-core, 4GB RAM, 500GB Hard drive
  • 2.3 GHz quad-core, 4GB RAM, 1TB Hard drive
  • Server: 2.3 GHz quad-core 4GB of RAM, 2TB Hard drive

The site also had some details about the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display.

Here are those configurations:

  • 2.5 GHz, 128GB of Flash storage, 8GB of RAM
  • 2.5 GHz, 256 GB of Flash storage, 8GB of RAM
  • 2.9 GHz, 512GB of Flash storage, 8GB of RAM

We may also have some hints about pricing for the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina. A Google search for "13-inch MacBook Pro" (pointed out by Gizmodo) shows links to Apple's store, referencing the new model.

Pricing is listed at $1,200 to $2,800 for the 13- and 15-inch MacBooks, but there's no guarantee that includes the new 13-inch MacBook with Retina. A current 13-inch MacBook Pro costs $1,200. And it could just be a mistaken tag.

Still, the fact Retina display is mentioned in the crawler is pretty interesting. We'll see what happens in a couple hours.
